I'd have to think that NetBSD/OpenBSD are more mature as they've
supported Sun h/w for so long.  If I'm not mistaken, Theo had a
big role in the sparc port for NetBSD.  At any rate, my non-Solaris
experience on Sun h/w is limited to running OpenBSD on a couple of
Blade 100's.  OpenBSD on the Suns was the same as *BSD on any
other platform I've run - uneventful, predictable, stable...
